governing the conduct of federal regulatory agencies have gaps so wide a wagon could go through Kremlin May Use Ikes Letter as Lever for TopLevel Visits to This Country By MARGUERITE HIGGINS New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON President Eisenhower was fully aware that his latest letter to Soviet Prime Minister Nikolai A Bul ganin contained a sleeper that would be used by the Kremlin as a lever for an in vitation for toplevel Russian visits tothis which have hitherto been re buffed This sleeper apparently represents a modification of American attitudes over the days when Marshal Georgi Zhukov then Soviet defense minister fished for an invita tion and was rebuffed It was contained in the Presidents observation that t am really amazed now to be told by Soviet leaders who have never even been near this country that there are those in the United States who in your words utter the dangerous call for preventive war A very logical response on the part of the Russians it is conceded here is to say in effect If you object to our comments on grounds that we have never had personal ex perience in the United States then why dont you invite us over The question of high level visits was also raised in the part of President Eisenhowers letter which states Would it not be well if in addition to scientists and technicians leaders of thought and influ ential citizens within the Soviet Union should come to the United Stales Eisenhowers immediate tar get acording to informed sources were lesser political lights in Russia such as the editor of Pravda or persons on the deputy prime minister level But it was recognized that the letter could well be the Kremlin desires a fishing expedition for Marshal Bulganin and Com munist Party boss Nikita Khrushchev themselves And according to official sources it was decided to go ahead and include the sleeper anyway because President Eisenhower and some of his advisers have concluded that the time may have arrived where a KhrushchevBulganin visit might not be a bad idea depending of course on the circumstances Our side has already made it clear if the South Korean author ities really want to realize the hope of those desiring to return home it is proper that they should directly approach the gov ernment of the Democratic Peo ples Republic of North Korea for this Previously the South Korean government had refused to deal with the Communists on the issue maintaining their legal position that the Red regime is an illegal government which the Seoul gov ernment does not recognize The 34 people aboard the Ko rean National Airlines DC3 in cluded two American pilots a West German couple and 30 Ko reans two of the latter children A North Korean newsman told reporters at Panmunjom Tuesday that some of the 34 were
